Due to the unique geological conditions, simbirtsit formation took place in the shells of clams – ammonites. Marble onyx crystals for 60-80 million years filled cavity of shells, interspersed with veins of pyrite, hematite and fossil nacre, creating a unique pattern and color palette. Such kind of Simbirtsit is rare. But there is another, more common – core Simbirtsit arising in the voids of the water deposits.
